EA Sports trying to kill game resales

12 Maj

EA starting this summer, is going to force players to enter in a special code to play their sports games online. So if you buy a used copy of an EA Sports game, you need to also purchase your own online code for an additional $10 from EA to play that game online.

Hey EA, thank you for giving me another reason to boycott your games.

Oh and let’s not forget that EA is pulling the plug on online support for dozens of its other older games.  Leaving owners unable to play previous generation of games to continue to enjoy them online.  Despite how inexpensive it is to support servers once they are up. This is yet another attempt to extract more money by forcing players to purchase the new version of game or double charge for the same game.
